The last two weeks I have been sewing every afternoon. My son's youngest child has out grown her school clothes. In another post I patched and added length to her jeans. Now trying my hand at re-purposing some of the older children's clothing.
One of the jumpers I had made was too tight in the chest area. So I cut off the bodice top and turned it into a skirt. My grand-daughter was trying this on for me. She was so cute. She came in and said Nana it won't stay up. There was a lot of fullness in the skirt so I had to cut more off the elastic to make it tighter. Also made the leggings. The leggings and tops are made longer so she could grow. We have at least 4 more months of cold weather up here.
This skirt is for another one of my precious grand daughters. I came up with this skirt by seeing another one similar to it. It took me 3 afternoons to make this skirt. I goofed on my measurement for the ruffles and did some re-adjusting. The skirt turned out really cute if I do say so myself. I have a pink material to make a top that will go with the skirt. That will have to be in another post.
It has been fun trying my hand at re-purposing garments and coming up with my own design.
